Looking for a unique bridal shower theme? Why not host an Asian themed bridal shower? Let the creative juices flow and craft a party inspired by the cultures of East Asia, but with a Western undertone. Choose materials and decorative elements that impart an authentic vibe–such as paper lanterns hung above the tables, antique ceramic bowls to present guest favors, and bamboo trays to serve an array of treats. Prepare shapely sweets like fortune cookies, as well as round-shaped treats symbolizing prosperity and fortune. To tie all the elements together, experiment with a color palette that breaks away from the traditional red and gold to include hues like orange, pink, and even aqua. The challenge is how to recreate the ambiance with a more contemporary look.
